Martin has been reaching out to pastors across the nation, urging them to address the needs of the thousands of children in foster care in their own communities.
"We are letting precious gifts just slide through our fingers. ...The burden is so heavy," acknowledges Martin. "But the situation itself is so great. And God just wants somebody that he can trust, that he can just put some children in their hand."
